Harper’s New Cardigan

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

My friend Amber and her husband welcomed home a beautiful baby boy last month – Harper Levi.  I couldn’t pass up the chance to knit him a little something and when I saw Pamela Wynne‘s Ella Funt pattern (Rav link), I knew it would be perfect!

Welcome to the world, Harper!

Surprise Visit

Baby Kai came to visit us at work yesterday and look who he brought along with him!

Sooo cute!!  (And Herbert is lookin’ good too!)

Long Overdue

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

These last few months have just FLOWN by and I am so behind on so many posts.  So without further ado, here are some long overdue photos of the awesome weekend workshop I took at the Textile Center back in March, entitled Artful Knit:  A Sculptural Approach to Knitting taught by Adrienne Sloane.

Babies, Babies Everywhere

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Several of my good friends at work are having babies!  Here are two little critters I knit up to help welcome home their new bundles.  First up, meet Jarvis the Jellyfish (Rav pattern link), knit with love for Baby Lucca.

Lucca’s mom has been asking me for a jellyfish since she saw rhymeswithfun’s Julius back in the day.  Jarvis now hang’s out over Lucca’s changing table and is sure to make diaper changes much more fun!  (Well, at least for Lucca anyway…)

Baby Quiba will be welcomed home by Herbert once he arrives mid-June.

Herbert was knit from the free Ribbit pattern with no real mods except that I only used fiberfill instead of the recommended tennis ball for stuffing.  Can’t wait to meet you next month, Kai!!

Gold!!

Vivienne’s Hat

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

This cute little hat (Rav link) was knit for Vivienne, whose parents Lisa & Brian will get to meet in just three short weeks!

It was an easy, fairly quick knit. The only mods I made were to add a few more flowers on top and only use five leaves instead of six.

The only downside of this uber cute pattern?  Weaving in all the ends…

I know I haven’t posted about my China socks yet or the cute hat I knit over the last Wedding Weekend Whirlwind trip two weeks ago, but I don’t have pictures of those yet and I am just LOVING how my owls sweater turned out so much that I had to share!

This sweater was designed to be very close fitting, but I purposely fiddled with my gauge and incs/decs to make it a more roomy pullover but still have some shaping.  (Yes, Celeste is still a total camera hog.)

I lucked out by finding the perfect color buttons, but it wasn’t until I sat down to sew them on (all 32!!) that I discovered I liked the backs even more than the fronts. The backs are a bit more subtle, but still catch the light.

Hooray for owls!!
